It’s the last day of December and time to think about January’s gluten-free challenge. Breads are certainly one of the biggest challenges of gluten-free baking. Biscuits, however, are on the easier end of the bread spectrum. For this challenge I would like you to make a gluten-free drop biscuit or rolled biscuit. Biscuits are typically a quick bread that does not use yeast. For the record, I won’t be highlighting dinner rolls; this challenge is just for biscuits.
Yeast gives breads a nice flavor, but the advantage of using baking powder and/or baking soda is that it’s fast. If you have a bread lover in your family, biscuits can be a quick way to satisfy that craving. I like using them as a quick accompaniment to soup or as part of an eggs and sausage type breakfast meal.
I don’t have many biscuit recipes on my site. Our favorite is this drop biscuit which turns out delightfully soft. I have tried rolled biscuits numerous times and have never found one I am happy with. I might continue experimenting this month with the hopes of finding something worth sharing.
How to Share Your Biscuits: Any Wednesday in January you can come to this blog and link your biscuit recipe as part of Gluten-Free Wednesdays blog carnival. Please follow the carnival guidelines. Each week I highlight entries from the previous week that are related to the monthly challenge. That means that in January I’ll be highlighting biscuit recipes.
If you are not a blogger, feel free to send me an email and tell about your biscuits. If you would like to write up your recipe and send it to me along with a photo (use good lighting but no flash), I will consider posting your recipe on my blog.
